Can Apple Cider Vinegar Remove Age Spots

by Corin Verduzco

I have come across sites and blogs that mention about using apple cider vinegar for age spots. You may wonder if it can get rid of your liver spots?

So what is apple cider vinegar? It is the result of storing organically grown apples in wooden barrels, allowing them to ferment naturally. It will form the mother, which is a foamy cloud that contains enzymes and minerals.

Many people use apple cider vinegar for health reasons. But does it really remove age spots?

During my research, I only found a few people who used apple cider vinegar to remove age spots successfully.

I rubbed it all over including my face, neck, whole body, arms, legs and feet. After a month I began to notice the sun spots were getting lighter, my skin was getting a more youthful look (I am 55 years old)

I've had age spots on the back of my hands for over 10 years. I've tried everything including laser to have them removed but nothing was successful until I tried apple cider vinegar mixed with onion juice; and believe it or not after just 3 weeks I'm so amazed at the results...

During the 1st month, my skin peeled off. For few weeks, my facial skin was so tender because of ACV, that it became a mild sore. To my amazement, the portions of skin that were peeled off remained my true skin color without the brown spot after it got healed

I am also a blond haired, blue eyed Polish Scandinavian. I had a few spots on my hands, but since I started drinking apple cider vinegar in water, (1 tablespoon ACV in ice cold water twice a day) they vanished.

I have applied apple cider vinegar, ACV mixed with onion juice, and lemon juice to the spots. They lightened within a couple of weeks, and after two months had just about disappeared completely. 

The key ingredient in this fruit vinegar is acetic acid. It can exfoliate the skin to allow newer tissues to appear. However, the root problem of age spots lies below the epidermis. If your hyperpigmentation is epidermal, then apple cider vinegar may help.

If you visit any skin care related forum, you'll read how some people saw their liver spots fade while others none at all. Since apple cider vinegar is a home remedy, there is lack of research to establish its effectiveness in removing age spots.

Now the question is, will apple cider vinegar work for you? There is no way to tell except you try it on your dark splotches.

If you decide to use it, then you must use the best apple cider vinegar. You must look for one that uses only organically grown apples without any filtration and pasteurization. Usually the strength of the acetic acid is at 5% and the pH level is between 5 and 7. Only this type of apple cider vinegar has the mother which will provide you with all the enzymes and minerals that you need.

I suggest that you get Bragg organic apple cider vinegar as it contains the mother. Plus, it is cheap.

Some people may be allergic to acid. It is best to apply a small portion of apple cider vinegar on a small area of your skin. If you don't see any reaction after 15 minutes, then it is safe to use.

However, if you experience any irritation, then dilute it with water. You can gradually reduce the amount of water as long as your skin doesn't develop any irritation.

Some people will remove age spots with apple cider vinegar by combining with either onion or citrus fruit juice. Based on Dr. Earl Mindell's Amazing Apple Cider Vinegar, you can mix 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar with 1 teaspoon of fresh onion juice.

How To Use ACV On Age Spots

Whether you use apple cider vinegar alone or combine with other natural remedies, all you need is to dab the solution on the age spots twice a day. Continue to do this for 2 to 4 months.

If you don't find apple cider vinegar to be effective as an age spot removal or your skin cannot tolerate the acetic acid, then you still have another option. If you are like me who have tried many ways to fade sun spots, then find out how I manage to lighten them
